Sufferings

To Earlston, Younger

“I remain still a prisoner of hope, and do think it service to the Lord to wait on still with submission, till the Lord’s morning sky break, and his summer day dawn. For I am persuaded, it is a piece of the chief errand of our life, that God sent us for some years down to this earth, among devils and men, the fire-brands of the devil, and temptations, that we might suffer for a time here amongst our enemies…but seeing a piece of suffering is carved to every one of us, less or more, as Infinite Wisdom hath thought good, our part is to harden and habituate our soft and thin-skinned nature to endure fire and water, devils, lions, men, losses, wo (sorrowful) hearts as those that are looked upon by God, angels, men and devils.”

To Lady Kenmure

“If my Lord would be pleased, I would desire some were dealt with for my return to Anwoth (the place where he was pastoring but he is now in prison); but if that never be, thank God, Anwoth is not heaven, preaching is not Christ; I hope to wait on.”
